Better Black and White Images in Lightroom

User

A guide to producing better black and white images in Lightroom. If you're going black and white with any photograph, the end result can be made stronger by doing things yourself and not just letting your software decide how to create the tones and contrast that ultimately make for a powerful black and white image.

In Search of the Perfect Camera

Holger Wahl (Holger)

The search for the “perfect camera” is as old as photography itself. When you ask anyone what their opinion is on this topic, you will get as many answers as there are photographers. Your best answer will come from your own head, after you resolve the same issues you would personally be facing when choosing a golf club, cricket bat or tennis racquet.How do plan to use it? What is your ultimate goal? And (most important) How much money can I spend? Read more...

Nikon D80 review - hands on

Armando Heredia (Covey22)

After following the initial pre-release speculation in our Nikon D80 Users Group forum at Nikonians I'd say Nikon has delivered on many fronts. It's clear this new D80 DSLR can not be slotted simply as a straight replacement for either the Nikon D50 or the Nikon D70, but that's not to say it isn't. It's shaping up to be a lot like a Nikon D50 in terms of size, but these comparisons can no longer be simply made. Read more...

Nikon D200 Field Report

Ernesto Santos (esantos)

The release of the Nikon D200 digital single lens reflex arrived with a lot of fanfare in December 2005. Nikon was again electrifying the digital SLR format market with this feature-packed and affordable compact little brother to the flagship D2X. Soon after receiving one I booked a two week trip to Wyoming’s National Parks. This was going to be an excellent opportunity to test the capabilities of this new digital marvel as a serious tool for nature photography. Read more...

How to create and use a dust-off reference photo

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

Dust bunnies are a fact of life, under the bed, and on your camera's CMOS or CCD imaging sensor. Users of Nikon Capture and Nikon's new digital SLR cameras have an exciting new way to deal with the problem. We'll use the Nikon D2x as a reference point in this article, but the information applies to almost all of Nikon's digital SLR cameras, with a few differences in the menu selections and filenames.

The DX AF sensor width and position test

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

A lot of discussion about the actual width of Nikon D2x autofocus (AF) sensors is flying around the Internet. There is not a lot of documentation from Nikon about the standard width of the 11 AF cross sensors. The article below is written using the D2x camera as an example, and talks about the 11 sensors in that line, but this information, except for sensor count, applies also to virtually all the Nikon digital cameras. So, if you have a D2H, D200, D100, D70, D50, or even an F6... read on. Read more...

Frequently Asked Questions on what film to use

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp)

Once again, this is one of the most common questions we see at photography forums. Both by beginners and even advanced amateurs. It is not easy to keep up with all the film offerings, even now. Yet, infrequently there is a site that offers a thorough, easy-to-follow, complete guide to select among the more than 115 possible choices we fortunately still have for 35 mm photography. This is our contribution in that direction in the hope it proves itself useful to fellow Nikonians. Read more...

NIKON D2X - Using the White Balance Controls

Darrell Young (DigitalDarrell)

Back in the good old days, we’d buy a roll of tungsten balanced film to shoot under the orange-colored light of indoor bulbs. Or, we’d buy a fluorescent filter to correct for the greenish light of a florescent bulb. If it was an overcast day, or we were shooting in the shade, we might add an A2 Nikon filter to warm things up a bit. Read more...
